Nestled in the heart of the Hunter Region is the beachside city of Newcastle. A top ten city in Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Travel 2011’ guide, Newcastle has a rich history, quirky arts culture and a thriving dining and shopping scene. Newcastle is a city that is always changing, a city with world class business, research and industry, and a city of hardworking genuine people.

There are few cities in the world beyond Newcastle that can say their city centre is surrounded by eight beaches. Close to the city is Newcastle Beach with the stunningly preserved Ocean Baths, while Nobbys is the picture perfect beach adjacent to dog-friendly Horseshoe Beach on the harbour. Bar, Dixon and Merewether beaches form one long stretch of ocean crawl worth walking, swimming running or rolling along courtesy of a recently upgraded coastal work known as the Bathers Way. Look out for whales and dolphins, a common sight off Newcastle’s beaches.

Explore one of the many local markets for fresh local produce, wines, gourmet foods, arts, crafts, fashion, jewelery, home wares and much more at Newcastle City Farmers Markets, The Olive Tree Markets and Hunt and Gather Markets.

Newcastle has an emerging food scene that makes it an appealing spot to indulge in quality food and wine. In Newcastle East there’s a new bar, cafe, deli or restaurant throwing open its doors every week. Hamilton’s Beaumont Street has long been a mecca for wining and dining, with a wonderful array of lively pubs and diverse sidewalk cafes. For those who prefer relaxed dining, Darby Street in Cooks Hill offers bohemian cafes and galleries. Enjoy lunch or a cup of coffee before heading off to shop in a variety of artisan stores. Or, for those who can’t go past those waterfront views, right on the harbour at Honeysuckle wharf, The Boardwalk is the place to head for sophisticated dining and smart bars boasting harbour views.

Newcastle’s nightlife is electric. Small bars are constantly popping up all over the city, while some old favourites have truly kicked things up a notch. There are boutique beer bars for those beer aficionados, glamorous harbourside bars and local pubs playing live music around the city. Enjoy a delicious cocktail at quality venues along Hunter Street before finishing up with a late-night coffee at the funky inner city Darby Street.
